About Isaac de Voss van Sintern

Sintern, van, family

Van Sintern (Sinteren), a family found in the Mennonite congregation of Hamburg-Altona, Germany, in the 16th-19th centuries. Pieter van Sinteren, whose daughter Elisabeth (1533-1624) was married to Geerlinck Roosen of Steinrade, Holstein, Germany, in 1565 or 1566, was a Mennonite and had probably moved from Holland or Flanders to Holstein about 1555. Heinrich van Sintern, a grandson of Pieter, was a tailor at Altona about 1600. Another Heinrich van Sintern was baptized at Lübeck in 1710. A Hinrich van (von) Sintern and Isaac van Sintern with his wife Neeltje Claesen and their children emigrated from Altona to Pennsylvania in the spring of 1700, where they joined the Germantown Mennonite congregation.

"1. Jan de Voss married Prientje Batten (four children) ; he was a Burgomaster at Handshooten, in Flandern, about 1550; his fourth son, Peter, is the following:

2. Peter de Voss married Jannicke Van der Mers ; their first child was Peter de Voss the second, born August 23, 1622, at Colchester (first date we have). Shortly after their marriage they had to flee on account of his religion to Col- chester, England, where he, with his wife, left Popedom and joined the Reformed church, and had born unto them three children.

After living at Colchester for some time with his wife and three children, who were born there, he moved to Amsterdam, Holland, where he, with his wife, connected them selves with the Mennonite church, and three more children were born unto them.

The De Voss family is intermarried with the Van der Smisson and the Roosen families. Sara de Voss, born 1629, married Pieter Van Sintern in 1655 ; had seven children. The fifth child was Isaac Van Sintern, born September 4, 1660; was married at Amsterdam to Neeltje Classen; they left Hamburg, Altona, in 1707, for Pennsylvania, with their four daughters, Magdalena, Sara, Adriana and Neeltje, and settled at Germantown, where the oldest daughter, Magdalena, married Martin Kolb in 1709, and Sara, the second daughter, married Jacob Kolb in 17 10; later they moved to Skippack, and are buried at the Lower Skippack Mennonite meeting-house.

Magdalena, the widow of Martin Kolb, under date of October 28, 1771, from Skippack (then Bebberstown), in the Grafschaft, of Philadelphia, in Pennsylvania, gave a record to the genealogist at Altona, which he received under seal through Hendrick Roosen, the 20th day of June, 1772; it was dated March 2d, 1772, giving the descendants of the family to be 202 souls.
